So cool! Okay, their mistake in describing your design is *not* cool, but the rest of it is. Congratulations! And what a treat it is for us to get the bonus photos too.

It looks beautiful! I must admit that one of the reasons I stopped subscribing to Vougue Knitting (after 25 years!) was because of the frequency of errors such as you pointed out. I can recall one very elabaorate sweater coat that erroneously described some feather trim as being glued onto the sweater, if you can believe it! Of course, in the directioons the trim is sewn on, but I shudder to think of how that designer felt upon seeing the reference to glue.

Congratulations on your VK debut! I purchased the magazine yesterday and took it to knit night, and was pleased to see your work in there.

Thanks for the clarification on construction, and the extra pictures. That helps a lot!

Cyndi in BC

I love this pattern! Hopefully the new Vogue Knitting will show up here soon. This is definitely going on my To Do List right now!

Shweta Shankar

Congratulations !!! This is beautiful.

Dawn

I absolutely love this! So cozy for the winter & this will be the only sweater I make this year.

Looks like you beat me to the punch. I just emailed you a photo of your design before I saw this post. And I love the extra photos you took. It's nice to see what the jacket actually looks like. Maybe I'll try to make this is in a lighter weight yarn. At any rate, it's a gorgeous design!

Thanks for sharing the additional photos, especially the one showing the sweater's unique construction. I think it looks fabulous, and I can't wait to get my hands on the magazine! :)

Jocelyn

It's definitely my favorite in the new issue. I'm trying hard to figure out what yarn to use. I'm thinking of Cashmerino Aran (4 1/2 sts/inch) and hoping that the over-sized nature of the design will accomodate the difference in gauge. What do you think? I'm open to other yarn sub ideas since Trendsetter is hard for me to find. BTW, I was really annoyed that there was no schematic, but your pics on Ravelry (and now here) helped a lot.

Emily

Gorgeous!! And the photos are tremendously stylish.
The construction is really clever-- too bad the copy is wrong, but if it makes you feel any better I never read their inane copy anyway :)

Pixie

I am totally buying this issue just for this pattern! :)

Emily

Also, Ravelry just told me its your birthday today. So, happy birthday!

Cher

Gorgeous! I said it on Rav and I'll say it again here: you rock. That cardi is to die for. Thanks for the heads up about the construction (which is actually very clever and knitterly).

Cher

And also: why are there *three* photos of the (lovely but far simpler) white cardigan? I can't even see the details of the dress next to it!

Elizabeth

That is an absolutely stunning sweater, and a brilliant design. Love the extra photos - that is one of my biggest pet peeves. I always want to see the other angles, especially with unusually constructed patterns. I will definitely buy this issue just for this sweater. Congratulations, and thank you for a lovely design!

Katinka

Thank you SO MUCH for the extra explanation and photos! As I looked at the design in the mag, I thought, "Well, it's from Angela Hahn, so I know it's got to be gorgeous, but I can't really tell what's going on in their picture!"

Congrats on a lovely sweater!

Shirley

Congratulations on your VK Debut! I will have to find a copy so that I can try it out. VK is not easy to get here.

Janet Daniels

Your photos are actually superior to those in VK. The belted shot gives me a better idea how I would wear it. And, you anticipated my observation that there was no schematic, the first thing I look at while I'm studying patterns.
Congratulations. This is very exciting.
Also, did you know that there's a great article about the silk industry in Lake Como in a recent Smithsonian Magazine. I read it with interest, knowing that you live there. To add to the interest, we have a customer at Miss Chickpea's Funky Fibers, in little Hudson, Ohio, who is from Lake Como.

Gale

That is one spectacular design. Many congratulations.

patty

I love the cable patterns you used. I might actually knit this!
